Smiles of cowards in lead showers,
This line is a smart callback to a classic ‘evil’ Jay-Z song, in which Jay says:
The context of the line in THIS song can be seen as a double entendre:
- First, Hodgy is talking about showering his opposers in lead; namely, shooting them. It’s easy to tell who the cowards are when Earl is around, because he’s shooting them.
- Second, he talks about the contrast between lead (an extremely dark element) and someone’s smile, saying that people that are scared of him are as easy to spot as an extremely white smile in an otherwise dark situation (such as said shower)
